Tile Trends that Create a Visual Impact without Destroying the Budget

Whether you’re building a home or remodeling your kitchen or bathroom space, tile can be used in a myriad of ways to create a unique, personalized space. Here are 6 tile trends to create stunning visual impact without destroying your budget.

Brick Design

Like many other industries, certain tile shapes come to the forefront of popular design each season. Brick shaped tiles are modern and timeless, and even with this simple shape the options are exponential. From macro to micro, vintage or clean and modern, polished to rustic, brick tiles are available in almost any color and finish you can imagine.

Chevrons

Chevrons and herringbone are a timeless pattern that never goes out of style. Herringbone and chevron designs are available on scales from thin lines to inches wide allowing you to create the pattern you desire.

Limitless Lines

Endless variations exist on another of the most basic elements of design: the line. Straight lines, intersecting lines, flat or three-dimensional, linear designs can run from the most simple to elaborate, modern to classic. Lines can add movement and depth to any tiled surface.

Grayscale

Tile can be a great place to add a pop of color, but designing in grayscale can add endless sophistication to your space. From cool late tones to blends of grey and beige, there is an entire spectrum of grey available in different shapes and finishes.

Soft Meets Hard

There is something magical about creating a soft design with something hard like tile. Distressed tile that has been sandblasted, tile with the look of fabric, warm and cool shades in soft tones can all create a reprieve from the hard lines often found in tiled surfaces. If your aesthetic is less modern and more classic and homey, the watercolor and velvety textures found in some tiles can bring warmth to your home.

Play with Size

Fragmented patterns on square and rectangle tiles combined to produce large, stunning compositions can create a statement piece in your bath or kitchen.  For something completely modern and new, supersized tiles bring new design possibilities to any home. Large, thin porcelain slabs can be used to cover countertops or to create smooth, stunning wall spaces and backsplashes.

Fun with Tile

The sheer number of options we have with tile allows us to create nearly anything we can imagine. Tile doesn’t have to be terribly expensive to create a truly unique appearance everywhere it is used. Many of the kitchens and bathrooms we’ve remodeled have included intricate and creative tile work. Take a look at the examples of our work in those links and let us know what you think.

Take these Bathroom Design Ideas to Heart when Designing Your New Master Suite

Your master bedroom is your retreat, and for many people, one of the most important rooms in their home. Making the most of your space and creating a sanctuary that fits your needs is especially important in such a personal space. Here are some great ideas for making your master bedroom divine.

Earthy and Natural

Creating a green, earth-friendly space in your home is easier than ever. Begin with a low VOC paint and decorate the space with a mixture of organic fabrics and recycled carpeting or reclaimed wood floors. You can create a peaceful vibe by bringing in lots of natural light and adding potted or hanging plants.

Island Breezy

Why not create a serene space for yourself inspired by luxury spas and island breezes? Light, flowing draperies allow for an airy feel.  Keep the palate light and soft, and add candles and a white noise machine for ultimate relaxation. If you’ve got space, the addition of a beautiful, high end soaking tub can take a spa-like bedroom to the next level.

Shimmer & Shine

If you’re looking for something a bit more decadent, bring some shimmer to your room by incorporating metallic elements. Choose a comforter with shimmer or shine that picks up the light, and accent it with pillows with metallic thread woven in. Bring in mirrors to bounce the light, and add metallic accents with dresser pulls and other hardware.

Timeless Taste

Some master bedrooms have more space than we can figure out what to do with. Why not create a tasteful space that meets whatever needs you have? Adding a sitting area or a desk to your master suite can be the perfect way to utilize the space to the maximum potential. Add custom cabinetry and trim, or a loveseat to curl up and read.

International Inspiration

Get inspired by travel or family heritage and create a space that reflects your international roots. Hand carved wood floors, moldings, and art from the country you’re reminiscing about can create a charming Old World space for you to enjoy.

Creative Kitchen Backsplash Designs that Make a Statement

The kitchen is one of the most used spaces in many homes. We socialize there, create meals for our family and guests, and often enjoy meals there. Though a great kitchen design begins with necessities, creating a space that captures your unique design style is possible. Here are some ideas for creating a creative kitchen backsplash that adds interest and personality.

Using glass as a backsplash in a contemporary kitchen design adds interest and creates a modern feel. Sheets of custom cut ultra-clear glass allow for almost endless possibilities. Custom wallpaper with your favorite recipes, labels from your favorite foods, or nearly anything else can create the perfect backdrop for your backsplash.

Using non-traditional materials is another great way to add a personal touch to your kitchen. If you’re looking for something shimmery, tiling the wall with pennies covered in a layer of epoxy can create a fun visual with a reclaimed vibe.

Perhaps your personality is a little bit more colorful – why not create a one of a kind whimsical backsplash with buttons? Cute, colorful, unique buttons can be found in bulk at garage sales, craft stores, and thrift stores, and attached to the wall with double-sided adhesive. Once in place, they can be grouted just like normal tile for a uniform surface that’s easier to wipe down.

For wine lovers, what better way to customize your kitchen than with a statement backsplash constructed with corks? You can use corks saved from your favorite bottles or favorite wineries to create a unique backsplash your friends are sure to admire.

Even if traditional materials are more your speed, there are lots of ways to create a beautiful, unique design using them. In a contemporary kitchen, one way to add dramatic interest is with texture. For a kitchen backsplash with a wow factor, woven copper can be beautiful and create conversation. Using strips of copper in a basket weave pattern will add shine, kept beautiful with a sealant to prevent patina from developing.

Using tile to create a custom patterned backsplash can be a great way to customize a kitchen. A simple geometric pattern like stripes, diamonds, or chevrons can add interest and with different widths and colors of tile, the options are limitless.

Consider these Amazing Bathroom Ideas to Create a Stunning Visual Appeal

For many homeowners, the master bath is where every day begins and ends. It’s not just a utilitarian space, it’s a sanctuary in which to relax and unwind. Whether you’re planning the master suite in a new home construction or remodeling your current en-suite, here are some amazing ideas for creating a stunning space you’ll enjoy.

Integrated Vanity Lighting

Mirrors with integrated adjustable LED lighting are a great addition to any bathroom. Adjustable light means saying goodbye to harsh shadows and unflattering angles, creating a perfect space to prepare yourself for the world.

Open Showers

Creating a glass enclosed shower is a great way to open up a bathroom space that’s smaller than you’d hope. Adding a luxury shower head creates a stylish and comfortable space and an open feel in your master bath.

Double Sinks

Luxury and satisfaction can come in the form of side-by-side sinks. There’s something comforting about having your own space. Not only that, but it allows for the bathroom to be used by more people at once, making prep time that much easier.

Heated Towel Rack

What could be more luxurious than stepping out of the shower on a cold day to a warm, cozy towel? Heated towel racks keep towels warm, as well as helping them dry and stay fresh after your bath or shower. Having them wall mounted saves space and creates an upscale vibe.

Walk-in Closet

At first thought, having a walk-in closet in your bathroom may seem unusual. However, having a walk-in that connects your master bedroom and bathroom can be ideal, creating a seamless morning experience.

Deep Soaking Tub

The shower is great for everyday use, but sometimes you need a bit more relaxation and serenity. A deep soaking bathtub is a must-have for creating a spa-like retreat right in your own home. Whether you choose a free-standing bathtub or a sunken tub, a deep model with space on the rim for candles, aromatherapy, or a glass of your favorite wine is the perfect addition.

Sauna or Steam Shower

Even in hot climates, a sauna or steam shower is a wonderful addition to your master bathroom. A sauna creates a relaxing space to detoxify and leave cares behind.
